Puer Aeternus-ensemble Theatre Co.
Puer Aeternus-ensemble is a theatre company founded in affinity with this dictum by Mallarmé:

Puer Aeternus-ensemble theatre company presents:


These unpoetic times . . . they move us not. We behold the sea and answer the call of the spirit realm: “Redemption through destruction.” Tear It Down! is a physical theater “collage” of elided texts by Aeschylus, Shakespeare & Schiller; live band performances of songs by David Bowie, Cockney Rebel & The Waterboys; and a visceral movement & gestural vocabulary.

With Thomas Foy, Frank Halbiger, & Joseph Ivo von Vespri
